Q. What can my son do if his sons ‘baby momma’ is calling herself a surrogate and offering to give him full custody for$
A: He has two options: Get her to agree to assign custody to him or take the matter to Court. Absent her agreement, he's going to have to go to Court. He should also put himself on the Putative Father Registry ASAP so that she can't adopt out the child without his consent. He can also file a Petition to Establish with the Court even though the child is not yet born. This will help expedite establishing his parental rights.
Q. If I am seeking Temporary custody for my grandchild in HI, I live in AZ, both parents give permission, is court needed?
A: Technically, that should probably be asked of an attorney in Hawaii because, likely, Hawaii is the only state that can determine custody of your grandchild. I will say, in Arizona, a Power of Attorney assigning rights to you for up to six months is valid. But even with its validity, you may run into difficulties enrolling the child in school or taking the child to the doctor simply because it's unusual.
Q. Can My attorney garnish my wages
A: She can. But she will have to sue you first and get a judgment. And then she can garnish your wages or put a lien on your property. I don't agree with her threatening to garnish your wages, but on the other hand, you wouldn't eat at a restaurant and then skip out on the bill. So why would you be allowed to do the same to your attorney? I'd recommend you call her and work something out. This seems like something that should be resolved without court intervention.
